The Alphamil Wellness Plan - A four week journey to a healthier you
by Dr. Sonia Copeland

About Alphamil

Packed in one food supplement made from organically grown rice, Alphamil is a health supplement which has the added value of being a functional food. It enhances the glucose uptake by cells for ATP (cellular energy) production which provides energy for all body functions. Alphamil is used as a medical food with anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, neuro-protective and neuro-regenerative actions.

About the Program

The Alphamil Wellness Program maximizes the experience and the results. The program is organized to assist and support individuals in establishing healthier lifestyles.  At the end of the program there is increased awareness on proper nutrition, fitness and overall behaviour change towards a healthy lifestyle and optimum health.
It’s a lifestyle for today’s busy pace of life. Are you struggling to be healthy with no time to eat properly and no time for the gym? Alphamil neutraceutical, a balanced diet, physical activity, a positive attitude and no toxic products are the key elements of the Alphamil Program.

Before you begin ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I ready to change my behaviour to gain better health, nutrition and have more energy?

  • Am I willing to commit to doing the full program for the stipulated period of time and beyond?

  • Do I have the foods needed to prepare the meals?

  • Can I have a buddy system or a support group to keep me focused and motivated?


Do the following preparation:

1. Make a shopping list of the food items needed for at least the 1st week.
2. Ensure you have comfortable exercise gears for walking and/or excercise.
3. Have a journal on hand to track your progress and chronicle the experience.
4. Order Alphamil for at least the period of the program.
5. Take photos of your body before starting. This will help to keep you motivated by seeing your body transform over time.

WEEK 1 - Detoxification
1. Incrementally increase your water intake to 6-8 glasses daily.
2. If you are already at the recommended daily volume of fluid, then increase by 1 glass.
3. Make a fruity smoothie with 2 measuring spoons (10 grams) of Alphamil powder for breakfast.
4. Fiber is important for cleansing the colon. Increase fruits and vegetables to 3-5 servings a day. Alphamil supports this process too.
5. Have a light lunch  having  one of the following:
   a) Soup
   b) Salad
6. Do 20-30 minutes of stretching exercise (pilates, tai chi, yoga etc.). You can find good instructional videos on YouTube like this one to get started and see what kind of exercise suits you. If you are already into an exercise routine add weights or resistance training.
7. Have your usual dinner but with a healthier twist. Better choices of vegetables and legumes for vegans and leaner animal protein steamed, broiled, baked or grilled for non-vegans.
8. Spend 10-15 minutes visualizing your goals (weight, health, success).
9. Journal the day’s experience


WEEK 2 - Fitness
Do everything from Week 1 and add the following:

  • Add brisk walking outdoors, or on a treadmill or cycling for 30 minutes. If you are already working out for 30 minutes then increase the time by 15 minutes.

  • Increase water intake by 1 glass

  • Make smoothies for two meals of the day adding 2 measuring spoons of Alphamil each meal. In other words, replace 2 meals with Alphamil. What if you’re getting too hungry during the day and need a snack or you are at work and can’t prepare a smoothie? How about preparing a healthy homemade cereal bar? Tweak the recipe to your liking and add Alphamil


WEEK 3 - Optimal Nutrition
Add to the routine of Week 2:

  • Sprinkle one table spoon of Alphamil powder to salads, soups and cereal.

  • Do the physical workout for an hour or two sessions twice daily.


WEEK 4 - Maintenance
The aim now is to eat health for life and supplement your diet with Alphamil
powder.

  • Flavor the water if this will help you to take 8-10 glasses daily.

  • Do some form of daily physical activity.

  • If time allows, work out either in a gym or aided by a video routine for 20-30 minutes.

  • Put some fun in the routine so it no longer is a chore:

     - Walk or jog with a friend or group
     -
Substitute your routine exercise for a hike, or a swim or go dancing...or if you want more:
       
Get into the shape of your life.
     -
Celebrate your success by sharing the experience and progress with friends. Have them over for a relaxing and fun         evening. Serve a delicious Alphamil shake

  • Start an Alphamil Wellness Group in your area and get great satisfaction helping one person at a time to achieve Optimal Health.

The Alphamil Weight Management Plan
“Lose weight, feel good and look good…..the answer is Alpha PSP”
By Dr. Sonia Copeland

There is an epidemic of obesity and overweight. Obesity is a risk factor for many chronic diseases. Child obesity is of even greater concern. Many children and teenagers are being diagnosed and treated for Type 2 diabetes. Modern lifestyles have contributed and compounded the problem as there is increasing sedentarism and people prefer to drive or take public transportation rather than walk.
Consumers are confused and often disappointed with the myriad of products which claim weight loss success. Weight management products must be safe and not create new health problems. The aim of the Alphamil (Alpha PSP) Weight Management Plan
is to aid individuals reach and maintain a healthy weight in a safe way. The Alpha PSP nutritional supplement is highly nutritious and at the same time low in calories. Achieving a healthy weight is important for overall health and wellbeing.  Furthermore on achieving your healthy weight there is a real chance of preventing and controlling many diseases and conditions.

Alpha Weight Management Plan

There are no magic pills for losing weight fast and keeping it off.  Be prepared to make and maintain lifestyle changes. Slow steady weight loss is the preferred method. In the first 2 weeks the loss is noticeable and then it becomes less dramatic.

Important Tips:
1. See your doctor before starting a weight management plan if you plan to lose more than 15-20 lbs.
2. Establish a support system (family, friends, a nutritionist, exercise physiologist etc.) It may be hard to make big changes on your own.

Meal Plan
Consult with a registered dietician if this is an option for you. A personalized plan is ideal.
We recognize that there is a diversity of diets and we encourage persons to take into account their food likes and dislikes. It is important to factor into the plan your distinct lifestyle, health issues and of course your personal weight loss goal.

Rule of Thumb:

  • Aim to reduce your daily caloric intake by 500 calories daily. It is risky to go below 1000 calories daily.

  • Make a list and shop for the foods including fruits, vegetable and supplements before starting the plan.

  • A healthy diet should contain foods from the following food groups  (carbohydrates, proteins, fats).

  • 3-5 serving of fruits and vegetables for vitamins, minerals and fiber.

  • Aim to have a very colorful plate of red, green, yellow, orange and purple foods e.g. bell peppers eggplant, tomatoes, squash, cabbage, lettuce, carrots.

  • Vegans will need to have a variety of legumes, green leafy vegetables, tubers and liquid amino acids.

  • Alpha PSP supplement powder is to be taken before meals, 1 teaspoon of the powder mixed in warm water, tea or coffee. For children under 12 years it is ½ 1 teaspoon three times daily before meals.

  • Aim to increase daily water intake to 8-10 glasses as you will be adequately hydrated while flushing the system to detox the body.

Exercise Plan
Consult with a trainer if this is an option for you. Personalized exercise prescriptions are highly recommended. Use a stepwise approach.
For persons who are completely sedentary:

Just simply get moving:

  • Make a conscious effort to walk (or be more active) around the house and at work.

  • Opt to use the staircase when there is an option but it you are having issues with your knees then just simply walk on the level

  • Park and walk in the shopping areas

  • Investing in comfortable footwear will encourage you to walk and exercise more.

For persons who are already active and engaged in physical exercise:

  • Ensure you have a combination of cardio and resistance training and increase gradually the routine.

  • Target the problem areas (waist, hips, thighs, buttocks etc.)


What should be the goal?

A normal Body Mass Index BMI
To calculate the BMI it is your weight in lbs. divided by your height in feet and inches:
Normal (18.5-24.9)

  • Maintenance exercise program

  • A well balanced diet

Overweight (25.0-29.9)

  • Cardio and resistance training

  • A healthy diet, reducing calories by 500 cal.

Obese (30 and over)

  • Pilates and water aerobics.

  • Incrementally reducing calories to achieve the recommended daily intake.


Waist circumference

The goal is < 35 inches for women and < 40 inches for men

Energy Balance

More energy in than out overtime will lead to weight gain.
More energy out than in will lead to weight loss.
